    Dear Friend


    According to the rules and regulations of UPSC ,the minimum age required for the civil services examination is21 years and since your age is only 20 years ,so my dear friend you have to wait for at least one more to be eligible for the civil services examinations.

    The upper age limitations depends upon the category to which you belong:

    For example:

    General: 30 years

    OBC:33 years

    SC/ST: 35 years

    This was all about the age requirements.

    Now coming to academic requirement,we have you must have done your graduation from a recognised university in any stream.

    Final year candidates can also apply for the exam.

    The no of attempts also depends upon the category to which you belong ,general candidates get a maximum of four no of attempts whereas obc and sc/st has advantage in this .OBC get seven attempts and sc/st can attempt as many times as they can in their age limitations.

    Hope the information helps you.

    If you have any other query ,you can leave your message here or visit www.upsc.gov.in

    all the best

    Re: Can I apply for IAS exams at the age of 20?

    NO, you can not apply for the civil services examination at the age of 20 years because the minimum age stated for this examination by UPSC is 21 years. Once you complete the 21 years then you can appear in this examination. You must also note that you need to have completed graduation in any stream from an well recognised university in order to appear in this examination. The upper age limit stated for it is 30 years. However there is an provision of age relaxations to reserved category.

    Re: Can I apply for IAS exams at the age of 20?

    Dear friend ,

    you are not eligible for civil services examination right now because you are not satisfying the age criteria which says that a candidate who wish to apply for civil services examination must be minimum 21 years old.

    see the age criteria:-

    * 21-30 years, for general

    * 21-33 years, for obc .

    * 21-35 years, for sc/st .

    so i advise you to wait for the right time , and you can use this time to prepare yourself for the examination .

    but still if you are 21 also then you have to fulfill other criteria mentioned here which is necessary to all the candidate .


    eligibility requirement:-
    1. he/she must be an indian.

    2. h/she must be a graduate from a govt. recognized university.

    if you fulfill all the criteria then you can apply for the same .

    but don't forget that here you can not apply as many times as you want that means here is a restriction of no. of attempts.

    no of attempts allowed :-


    * for general:- 4 attempts.

    * for obc category:- 7 attempts.

    * for sc/st category:- no any restriction.



    good luck for future.

    Re: Can I apply for IAS exams at the age of 20?

    No, you are not eligible to give IAS Exams now.

    One has to give the Civil services exam conducted by UPSC to become IAS Officer.

    To give this exam, you have to satisfy some criteria.They are as follows:

    The educational eligibility required is any degree of any stream from recognized University.

    The age criteria should be minimum 21 years and maximum 30 years for general category candidates.

    There is Upper age relaxation as follows for reserved category candidates.

    The maximum age limit is 33 years for OBC Category Candidates.

    The maximum age limit is 35 years for SC/ST Category Candidates.

    The maximum age limit is 40 years for PWD Category Candidates.

    As your age is 20 years now, you are not eligible to give the exam.

    But you need not worry about this, you can start your preparations for the exam.

    Join good coaching center, because clearing the Civil services exam requires determination and hard work without these you cannot achieve success.

    So, spare this one year for preparation and then apply for the exam.

    Without proper preparation, don't give any trial attempts, that may lead to decrease your number of attempts for the exam.

    Because there is limit on the number of attempts given for the exam.

    4 attempts are allowed for General category.

    7 attempts are allowed for OBC Category.

    No limits for SC/ST Category.

    Exam Pattern is as follows:

    Prelims or CSAT

    Mains

    Interview.

    Re: Can I apply for IAS exams at the age of 20?

    sorry to say that you can't apply for IAS at the age of 20 years. because according to age limit for IAS your age must be within 21 years to 30 years on 1 August of the year of exam. There is also available relaxation in upper age limit according to government norms as 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/ST candidates.

    for IAS post you have to write Civil Services exam that is conducted by UPSC every year.

    for Civil Services you need graduation degree in any discipline from recognized college or university with any percentage. final year candidates can also apply for the exam.

    Civil Services exam is conducted in three phases and you have to clear all the phases to become an IAS officer.
    The three phases are CSAT(Prelims), Mains and Interview

    there is also applicable limit of number of attempts like 4 for General, 7 for OBC and there is no limit of number of attempts for SC/ST candidates.


    UPSC provide the facility to apply for the exam online. you can apply for the exam online by USING link:

    No you cannot apply for the civil services examination because the age limit of the same is 21 to 30 years of age and your age is 20 years only you should wait for 1 more year to apply for the same.If you like to apply then you must see the eligibility criteria of the examination--you must be a graduate in any discipline from a recognised university or if you are appearing for the final year of examination then also you can apply for the same but make sure you need to ahow the proof at the time of the verification.-First of all there will be 2 papers in the preliminary exam that is known as CSAT civil services aptitude test.-If you qualify both the examination then you will get the call for the mains examination.-Mains will include total of 9 papers of 2000 marks if you qualify them then you will be get the call for the interview and that will be of 300 marks.for more details log on to www.upsc.gov.in thank you.

    My Dear Friend
    Eligibility Criteria of Age : Age should be 21 to 30 years

    So do not suit with the eligibility criteria for civil service exams conducted by UPSC

    So you can't appear for the exam at the age of 20, you must be within 21 to 30 years of age.

    Thank you
